Happy Easter to all our visitors! I’ll be spending the weekend with family, but I managed to write another acne article last night that should be published soon at the usual sites (ezinearticles.com’s acne section is the easiest place to find mine and other acne articles).
This last article was on green tea and acne. I blogged a while back about green tea acne treatment, but the new article goes into a lot more depth about the different methods of using green tea and the positive or negative aspects of each. Drinking green tea (6-8 glasses per day, freshly brewed, with no sugar) remains the easiest and best way of reaping the benefits, but I learned a few new interesting facts, such as:
Green Tea is actually one of the most popular beverages in the world, apparently second only to water.
Also, simply placing a warm green tea bag on acne lesions can help draw out the toxins and speed healing.
Since green tea can deter hormonal shifts, it’s one of the few treatments that can help prevent, or at least diminish the intensity of, future acne. While vitamin B5 treatments such as Clear5 tend to have stronger, more dramatic effects (and are easier to take than constantly brewing tea), since green tea works differently – targeting toxins in the skin rather than oil production – it may work for those people who do not have great success with B5.
